Parental lock in AKAI TV (Model # CTSL34E)

Hello,

When I turned on my TV a few days ago - I got a blue screen with a key symbol in the upper right corner of the screen.
I can't remove it, and, of course, can't see anything except for the blue screen and the key synbol...

Please HELP!
Thanks...

    I've already tried that, but I was told by the authorized dealer that the TV is too old, so they do not support it...

  • eranh1972 Jul 03, 2008

    OK, so none of these solution worked, however, I managed to unlcok it by pressing "11110000" on the remote!

    And it appears that pressing the "INDEX" key on the remote activates the parental lock...



    So I guess I should be paying myself now... :-)

  • eranh1972 Jul 05, 2008

    Sure - but how do I do that?...



    Thank you very much anyway!

Try 1111 or 0000

or try holding down the channel up button on the remote for 10 seconds

    another thing to try is this,

    ...hold the channel button on either the Remote or TV
    up and hold the volume button on either the Remote of TV down at the
    same time then it resets the password to 0000. Then type in that code.

    not a proven solution but may be worth a try. having trouble locating a manual for a set this old. :)

    or try this solution by mikeandtab ... is for a later model set, but may be worth a try.

    1-PRESS THE BRIGHTNESS KEY ON THE REMOTE.

    2-PRESS THE FREEZE KEY ON THE REMOTE.
    3-PRESS THE MENU KEY ON THE REMOTE

    4-PRESS THE ENTER KEY ON THE REMOTE. THE SCREEN WILL BLINK BLACK ONCE
    AND ALL CODES ARE RESET.

    give it a whirl as well... still searching for solutions for you.

    how old is the set, can you check to see if it has any other model numbers?

    thanks

    Hi eranh1972

    Great to hear... i think you will find it is only a 4 digit number that operates the vlock chip. Is probably 0000, the last set of 4 digits you entered. You were always going to have to fix it yourself, as we can only give you suggestions as to what you have to do to solve your problem. I am glad I was able to provide that to you. I did spend 30 mins searching obscure technical websites, so now I also have all the factory default codes to reset the unit entirely, however, you would then have to setup every factory setting in the television. It would have also released the vlock.

    regards

    Probably no result.

    The only way to set a TV back to a state where it has no password is to find an internal battery.
    If this can be located and removed for say, a day or two, or the connections shorted for a few seconds, where the battery was, then the battery replaced.
    The memory parts should now be back to normal so that the TV can be reprogrammed with TV stations.

NO PICTURE ON TV / JUST BLUE SCREEN / W/RED SYMBOL.Have an Advent TV -- seems locked up, can't get a picture, just a blue screen with a red symbol in upper right hand corner


Look to the owner manual if you have it as it will likely have the answer you need--if no manual Google the model number with "manual" to try to locate the owner manual---if get or have it read it carefully as it sounds like to me the parental lock is on or something similar to it.

When i turn on the tv its just a blue screen


turn it to channel 3 then flip through the stations. if you dont have your cable hooked up to the tv hook it up and it should work fine.
or

Child lock
- Parental control
- V-Chip

Often those lock require a password that is by default "0000"

From a research i did, it seem it might be cleared by holding the diplay button on the remote for 10-15 seconds.
please specify your tv model number and are you getting a red lock symbol for further queries

Parental Lock


Try unplugging the tv for a few minutes. This reset the front panel lock on my JVC tv. I got it from the manual, which I found at the JVC site by Googling the specific model of the tv along with JVC and manual. I found the manual right away.

Sounds like you  accidentally "set" the parental lock while you were sleeping.

Try this trick: (may or may not work)

aim the remote at the TV "IR sensor", hold down "display button" on the remote for 10 seconds to erase or clear the password.

"IF" this works go into the menu and "TURN OFF" parental control.
